  1. Past hour
  2. Nutcracker Casting

    That was the first role I saw her dance...when she was just underway in her career. What wouldn't I give to see her dance it now! Will look forward to your report.
  3. ABT 2017 Spring Season at The Met

    Congratulations to the couple. Always nice when an absence is for happy news
  4. Today
  5. It’s interesting that this topic had gone pretty quiet relatively quickly, but then the photos/captions were changed/removed and canbelto was blocked and BOOM, the conversation got lively. They can’t put the genie back in the bottle and attempting to do so just makes people discuss it even more. My tween seems to have a better grasp of how social media works. You can have both a public and a private Instagram, and even then you should never put anything out there that you may wish to take back.
  6. Yesterday
  7. I can understand that being the case. I remember when a friend bought the same special perfume in Paris for his new partner that he used to buy for his ex-wife (with whom he was still friends) It was a bit of a shock to all of us, seemed somehow an act of disloyalty. Or like an incident from a Hitchcock film. Regarding dirac's commented on the guy coming out during his wife's pregnancy, I agree and sense the relationship might have been entered in a bit of bad faith on his part.
  8. Krysanova - Lantratov To Open Romeo & Juliet !

    Obraztsova IS Juliet, as shown time and time again. Bolshoi can go ahead and put her last, but I predict she will be the best by a long shot.
  9. I never posted on their pages. All it means is if I sign into instagram with my official handle, I can't see their postings. And they never saw my postings as they did not follow me back. But as someone else pointed out, if I sign out of my instagram account I can still see their pages. Basically, their posts are still available for anyone to see who has internet access.
  10. Nutcracker Casting

    Third week of casting is up. I'm thrilled to find I have a ticket to see Tiler Peck's Dewdrop! I look forward to any Nutcracker reports.
  11. PNB and The Robbins Centennial

    But I have it cast in my head with PNB dancers
  12. ABT 2017 Spring Season at The Met

    She's so sweet (I've never met him). Wishing them every happiness.
  13. PNB and The Robbins Centennial

    A great lineup for this program. I guess you would have to go to SF to see The Cage - SFB's Robbins program is (currently) slated for Mar 20 - Mar 25 (7 shows). A rather short period, but maybe there will be added shows… https://www.sfballet.org/season/2018-repertory/2018-program-5 Fortunately PNB's program and SFB's program are running at different times of the year so it's possible for jet setters to see both.
  14. We don't know why any of this happened, since he hasn't issued a public statement. We only know the facts, which are that his and Day's posts, photos, and comments were on Instagram, some of them, including links that were posted here, are gone, and he's unfollowed canbelto after she posted links to his public-facing social media in there original form after they had been seen many times by many followers and lurkers, a far larger community than Ballet Alert!
  15. Wow! Congratulations to the both of them.
  16. Looks like Luciana Paris is going to be out of commission for a while - until the 2018 Met season - and for the happiest of reasons! Congratulations Luciana and Jonatan Lujan!
  17. I personally was quite shocked by the content Robbie was posting on Instagram recently; it felt like he had literally replaced Tiler with Day overnight (identical pictures of their dogs replacing Tiler's dog with Day's etc.) It was particularly surprising given he had witnessed his sister suffer through a very painful/public (at least within NYCB) breakup very recently. I'm guessing Megan had a "sisterly chat" with Robbie about how broadcasting his new relationship was hurting people (Tiler) and he may have blocked Canbelto in a fit of impulsive embarrassment.
  18. POB 2018 US tour cancelled

    So if nobody knows the answer to my question directky above about the extent of Lincoln Center's subsidy, we can't know how much it will discourage future visits. The companies can still contract with the Koch directly or through an arts management company, etc.
  19. I imagine It does accomplish sending a message of displeasure, and desire not to be involved (whether through instagram or in the theater or wherever or however) with the person, and doesn't it also eliminate her ability to post on their pages as well as Fairchild getting an automatic feed of her postings.
  20. I'm not sure these links make a convincing case regarding Hollywood being a whole new Hollywood when it comes to romantic leads. But it would be nice to think I am out of date. (I wouldn't speculate about Fairchild's motives or issues. There are a million reasons why he could have changed his mind about his social media uploads. He IS a great and truly distinctive and utterly charming dancer with tremendous charisma--and since I care about ballet more than I care about Broadway or Film or even other kinds of dance, I would be thrilled to see him land back in a ballet company! But of course I wish him all success whatever he does. And if he can be a ballet ambassador to other art forms--so much the better.)
  21. Robert Fairchild and Tiler Peck...........

    I wish I could claim some sort of ninja level google-fu, but these were literally in the top five or so links that popped up when I searched "gay movie stars." It really is a new world.
  22. Kathleen, I feel like you always have the best links!

  26. Robert Fairchild and Tiler Peck...........

    100% this. I agree the poster who said that what seems to bother them is that people are talking about it.
  27. Jerome Robbins Centennial

    Here's Part 1 of the latest press release from the Robbins Foundation, and it has heaps of info: THE JEROME ROBBINS FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES THE CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION OF JEROME ROBBINS’ LIFE AND WORK (New York, NY. November 8– 2017) Jerome Robbins, world renowned for his work as a choreographer and director of ballet and theater, film and television, would have been 100 years old on October 11, 2018. In honor of his life and legacy, The Jerome Robbins Foundation, partnering with other institutions across the country and around the world, will celebrate his centennial year through Spring 2019. Robbins – recipient of dozens of awards and honors including an Oscar, four Tony awards, and one Emmy award among others – choreographed and/or directed many Broadway shows including: On the Town, Billion Dollar Baby, West Side Story, The King and I, Gypsy, Peter Pan, Miss Liberty, Call Me Madam, and Fiddler on the Roof. His last Broadway production in 1989, Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, won six Tony Awards including best musical and best director. Among the more than 60 ballets Robbins created are Fancy Free, Afternoon of a Faun, The Concert, Dances At a Gathering, In the Night, In G Major, Glass Pieces, NY Export: Opus Jazzand Ives, Songs, which are in the repertories of New York City Ballet and other major dance companies throughout the world. His last ballets include A Suite of Dances, created for Mikhail Baryshnikov (1994), 2 & 3 Part Inventions (1994), West Side Story Suite (1995), and Brandenburg (1996). Said the directors of the Foundation, “Jerome Robbins’ output was incredibly far-reaching. While his ballet and Broadway work is well known, many forget his work in film and television and almost no one is aware of his visual art – photography, drawings, and paintings – and copious writings on a range of subjects. Our aim is to celebrate Jerry and all his work.” The Jerome Robbins Centennial will be framed / spearheaded by a number of programs by the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Jerome Robbins Dance Divisionand an almost three-week festival of his ballets at New York City Ballet. NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS: THE JEROME ROBBINS CENTENNIAL Fellows Program & Symposium As the home of his archive, the Jerome Robbins Dance Division recently awarded six fellowships to dance artists and writers to generate new scholarship on Robbins’ legacy. The fellowship period runs through December 2017 and will subsequently culminate in a day-long symposium on Friday, January 26, where fellows Ninotchka Bennahum, Adrian Danchig-Waring, Robert Greskovic, Julie Lemberger, Alastair Macaulay and Hiie Saumaa will present the outcome of their research. Bruno Walter Auditorium, NYPL for the Performing Arts, 111 Amsterdam Ave., NYC. 26 January 2018. 10am - 5pm. Exhibition The identity of Jerome Robbins and New York City are inextricably linked as one defines the swagger and style of the place and the other molds and influences the man. For the exhibition Voice of My City: Jerome Robbins and New York, running September 2018 - March 2019 at the Oenslager Gallery, urban historian and dance writer Julia Foulkes explores Robbins and New York side by side, demonstrating how his artistic output captures the city in particular moments of history and how the unique nature of New York led to the specific genius of Jerome Robbins. Oenslager Gallery, NYPL for the Performing Arts, 40 Lincoln Center Plaza, NYC. September 2018 - March 2019. NEW YORK CITY BALLET: ROBBINS 100 New York City Ballet’s 2018 Spring Season will celebrate the centennial of Jerome Robbins’ birth with Robbins 100, a tribute to the Co-Founding Choreographer’s remarkable contributions to classical dance at large and his indelible impact on the NYCB repertory.
